What happens when you go beyond what you think is real, what you think is way of life, what you feel is happiness in general…what you can see..what you can hear..what you can touch…stepping into the wild unknown of everything…The movie “Into the wild” depicts the eminence of solitude. For all those who are going stark raving mad about their way of life…forgo the bitterness and enjoy this flick. Based on a real life incident-the movie is a sincere wonderment to all those who get connected with its “quotes” :
“The sea’s only gifts are harsh blows, and occasionally the chance to feel strong. Now I don’t know much about the sea, but I do know that that’s the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind deaf stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head”
“If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed”
“I’m going to paraphrase Thoreau here… rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth”
“The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences”
“Mr. Franz, I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don’t want one”
“It is easy, when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God-given right to have it”
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; / There is a rapture on the lonely shore; / There is society, where none intrudes, / By the deep sea, and music in its roar; / I love not man the less, but Nature more… / “.
